|Don't bother trying Ms. Cankles|
Shoes do not always look good on anyone no matter the size.
Sure, we like to say they do, and yes, they're generally kinder than pants (which I loathe shopping for), but in reality you can certainly be too skinny, too fat, or simply have the wrong type of body (man calves anyone?) for certain shoes.
Take ankle straps for example. If you have skinny, tiny bird ankles that look like they may snap at any second, chances are ankle straps aren't your thing. They won't fit, don't support, and look like ass just dangling around the ankle like a defective anklet. Conversely if you have giant cankles and have to cut off circulation to get that buckle around what others call an ankle, those probably aren't your best bet.
|These can make me look like a bell.|
So shoes may be more forgiving than pants, skirts, and pretty much anything sold at Forever 21, but, just like pants, that doesn't mean everyone gets a free pass to wear whatever shoes come in their size. Make sure you're wearing something that flatters your body shape (actually important), that doesn't create "foot fat" or unsightly bulges, and most important, make sure you can walk in them.
The best pair of heels go totally to waste when someone is doing the cow walk in them.
